Which Christmas Pathway Lights are Right For You?
LED or Incandescent?
Not sure about whether to purchase LED or incandescent pathway lights? The three main factors when deciding between these two light types are preference, price, and display size. LED pathway lights are the better option for a large display because they will save you on power, the setup is easier with less extension cords needed, and they're more reliable overall. There are also more color and style options available with LED lights, however they are also more expensive.
If you're on a budget, incandescent walkway lights can do the job, but they require more planning based on the size of the driveway, pathway or landscape you're lighting. When using incandescent lights you'll also need to take into consideration how many outlets and circuits you need available to power the display without tripping breakers.

Warm White or Cool White?
Warm white LED bulbs emit a golden glow that closely mimics the light tone produced by incandescent lights. They are commonly paired with red for a candy cane look. Cool white LEDs produce a bright white glow which is perfect for mixing with other colors and can be seen from greater distances in outdoor scenes. Popular color combinations for cool white LEDs include blue, red, and green. Cool white pairs well with silver accents, snowflakes, and winter wonderland themed displays as well.
Want to add some color but not an overload?
By using these color combinations, you will soften the look of multicolor. Have some fun this season and add a touch of color to your yard!
Which Light Stake is Right for My Project?

7.5" All-In-One: Dependable and durable are a few qualities this stake has. The bulbs are able to sit up high off the ground for pure luminescence with moderate snowfall. It can be used with C7, C9, and mini bulbs for plenty of decorating options.
15" All-In-One: This sturdy and strong stake is perfect for yards expecting a heavy amount of snowfall. The stake allows the bulbs to sit higher off the ground so your creation will still be illuminated and not covered by snow. C7 and C9 bulbs are recommended for use with this stake.
Fun Alternatives to Traditional Christmas Walkway Lights
